I am sad to report that the community of Lax Kw’alaams lost their Grace United Church building to a fire last night. The photo of the church, shown standing strong, is from the Grace United’s Facebook page. The church has been completely destroyed. There are few details now; thankfully no one was hurt.
The photo below is one I took of the village, when I last visited. Please join me in holding the community and their minister, Lawrence Sankey, in prayer.

A new ‘My Map’ for the regional council is being populated. It is not yet finished, but does show the Indigenous Church communities of faith in the regional council, including Grace United in Lax Kw’alaams. Click here for the map.
